Mickelson perfect at Pebble 

Phil Mickelson’s amazing comeback at the 2012 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am puts him among the all-time golfing greats, ahead of Jack Nicklaus and Johnny Miller.

In a near flawless performance, Phil Mickelson staged a dramatic comeback to win the 2012 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Six shots behind the leader heading into the final round, Mickelson sank putts all day with a bogey-free 8-under 64 to become the ninth player in history with 40 career PGA Tour wins.

 

The victory was also his fourth at Pebble Beach, which ranks Mickelson second all-time, ahead of Jack Nicklaus and Johnny Miller and just one behind Mark O'Meara.

 

Winning for the fifth consecutive time when paired in a final round with Tiger Woods, Mickelson showed that his drive to win is as strong as ever.

 

"It feels awesome," Mickelson commented after his round, adding, "Hopefully it is just one of a few this year."
